Cleaners who work on the Tyne and Wear Metro have secured a major improvement to their terms and conditions after an Employment Tribunal ruled in their favour.
For the first time the workers, who are members of the RMT union, will receive double time for working on Bank Holidays.
They will also get time and a quarter for working Sundays.
The payments will be backdated to 2011.
